A-Frame Cabin

A-Frame cabins are visually appealing due to their unique shape. Who doesn't like triangles?!  I like this one because it's larger in size to accommodate more people and it won't feel cramped like some a-frames.



I wonder what the "box" on the bottom is...It looks like it could be storage or something. Either way, it's probably functional, as most cabins need to take advantage of all the space that's available to them.

Modern Cabin Dining Room*


What a gorgeous dining room!  I like the colors used here, as I tend to favor the more Gray-Brown color to the basic browns regularly found in cabins, like on the walls in this image.  It's nice to break up the color scheme with variations in colors, as cabins tend to be overwhelmingly brown...  

I like furniture made out of minimally processed log style wood like this one.  It makes you feel especially rustic when eating your elk chili and cornbread with your family and friends!  This one has a "burnt" style of distressing and it changes the color.  This picture is a bit hokey with the green background, but the website has free shipping on this!

Just picture it with all of your cabin themed plates, cups, napkins and candles etc. It would be perfect!

Pre-Fab Cabin located on Vashon Island, Washington

Pre-Fab homes are becoming more and more popular in today's age due to people's desire for "Instant Gratification" in their lives. I have to say that this option is tempting to me too, as I tend to like things that come easily to me, but I like to choose my own finishes and design.  Companies are realizing this now, so most pre-fab homes can be customized, which gives you more control over the finished product.

Beautiful Pre-Fab options are available from many different companies. I like this one, which is located on Vashon Island in Washington. I am not affiliated with this company, I just liked their designs. I provided a link below to their website if you want to find out more.

Common Core Math Doesn't Always Solve The Problem


This is Exactly how I feel trying to help my kids with math!  What ever happened to the normal way of doing math!? 

Hopefully this is all just a fad and everything goes back to the way it used to be...

Cabin Funny

Thought we should hang this up at the Cabin. It definitely makes sense!

Beautiful Interiors - Tee Pee House*

Well, this is another one that's not exactly an interior, but I'm sure you'll appreciate it enough to forgive me!  Isn't this cool? 



This is a unique house if I've ever seen one, and believe me, I've seen many interesting homes!  (I binge watch Netflix shows about the world's most interesting homes...I know nerd alert)  This is also an exceptionally beautiful photograph even if the house wasn't in it!!!  It does need some work, but it is still awesome.

I saw this unique floor lamp that would go well in here.  It's made with oars in the base.  Here's a link.

TGIF!!

It's my favorite day again...


Friday is my favorite day for a lot of reasons. I like it because it's the end of a typical workweek and I get to slack off the next day.  I like it because I get some time to myself.  But I like it mostly because I get to hang out at my house most of the time. And they do say...

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

I can't help it to want to hang out at my house.  It's quiet, it's peaceful, and out in the country away from the hustle and bustle.  In the winter, I enjoy lighting my fireplace and cuddling up on the couch with a nice blanket (and usually my laptop).  I am usually watching some HGTV or Food Network show and working simultaneously. 

So, have yourself a wonderful Friyay!

Beautiful Interiors - Cabin Porch

Here's my beautiful pic for today. It's not technically an "Interior", but it looks so inviting that I'm sure you'll forgive me!

I love this porch picture. It looks like the perfect sitting spot for my morning coffee. Would you care to join me? I've got some heavy whipping cream if you're on the Keto diet like me.  Can I challenge you to a game of crib?

Beautiful Interiors - Whitewashed Cabin Great Room*

This has got to be one of my favorite looks!!! It is absolutely stunning!  I love how clean and bright it is with all the white.  It's definitely a different look, and not for everybody, but I think it's great...because it's different and unique.  And that black chandelier is perfect!


I saw these awesome rustic lamps the other day that would go great in here. Here's a pic.

Beautiful Interiors - Bunk Beds

Here's my beautiful pic for today. It's a super cute bunk bed.  It makes great use of space and is really creative. I would sleep here, but would have to arm wrestle the kids for it! Lol.  What about you? Would you like this as your sleeping quarters?

I love how the wood is all kind of pale and light colored compared to a lot of wood that is darker. The gray accent table is a nice touch.

White Living Room Cabin Decor


Liked this living room decor, in the whitewashed look.  I like the exposed structural elements.  At first, it looked a bit out of place and mismatched, but I ended up liking it.  What do you think?


TGIF!!

YeeHaw!! It's Friday!!

Time to kick up your heels and celebrate!  How are those New Years Resolutions working out for ya?  I am just going to do my "Be the best person I can" thing in 2019. 



So far, it's working out great. Or, at least I haven't heard otherwise!  Just kidding...  I have been told that I am a very helpful person by several people lately, so that's good. 

So, whatever your resolutions are, if any, BE INSPIRING!

Beautiful Interiors - Ski Chalet*

My Oh My! This one takes the cake for the week!  What a beautiful great room!  Looks like they just got done snow shoeing!

And I noticed it's an outside room, with overhead heaters and a fireplace to warm things up. I might prefer somewhere inside, but this is a great idea!  Those beams are impressive!

And I love the sconces!  I saw some interesting sconces on a website the other day that were made out of snow shoes!

Here's the link. http://www.bestcabindecor.com/Cabin-Lighting-Snow-Shoe-Wall-Sconce-Light-Decor-p/rh-760.htm

Rustic Sugar Cookies Completed

Well, in case you all were in suspense about whether or not I did those sugar cookies, I didn't.  But I did do these beauties!  The snowflakes are in a pretty Tiffany blue color with an ivory accent.

I got the idea for the larch trees and cardinals from Pinterest.  I love that site!!!

What do ya think?  Good enough to eat?

Beautiful Interiors - Cabin R&R

I am always finding myself scouring the net for beautiful cabin pics, I don't know why. I guess that makes me somewhat of a nerd... I am not ashamed...Whatever the case may be, I have come across some great photos and some great blogs in my journeys and I want to share them with you.  So, each week I will share another beautiful picture for your eyes to feast upon.

I like this one because this is what my perfect day would consist of. I love the four poster bed with the lights hanging from it, the buffalo plaid, and of course cuddling on the couch! Oh, and those tiny sconces above the headboard on the bed. Little antlers. How rustic.

Feel free to share any of your favorite photos with me!

Rustic Sugar Cookies Anyone?

Might try making these today...I used to dislike making sugar cookies because they are so tedious, but not anymore. I've learned to appreciate the challenge in things. Plus I've watched a few tutorials haha.  Plus, you know the saying...Good things are those worth waiting for! 



I will let you know how they turned out. If they are hideous, I will not post pictures. Lol.

TGIF!!

Thank goodness it's Friday, or as I like to say...


Many of you look forward to Friday, not just because you have a typical workweek, but because you get a day off the next day (hopefully), or have some time with the kids (if that's a good thing), or just some time to yourself (if you're into that sort of thing).

I will more than likely need to get caught up on chopping wood for my fireplace.  I like to let the kids help carry wood...It seems like it's a never ending thing, chopping wood.

And then will be blogging in the Cabin Decor world.  I have found several I like, so I plan on posting links to their sites soon.

Whatever you decide to do, make it wonderful and do something nice for yourself! (I'm especially talking to all the single moms out there!!!!)

So, here's to YOU!!  Go and have yourself a great day! Be inspiring!

New Year's Resolutions?

I don't know if you guys are anything like me with the whole New Year's Resolutions thing, but I just don't usually end up sticking with them.  There's so much pressure, and they are sometimes unrealistic.

So, I take an alternate approach, which is to make a conscious effort to be an overall better person.  I find ways to be kind and pay it forward, I help people who are in need, and I volunteer my time when I can. 



So, I don't do the typical "Lose 20 pounds" resolution, or the "Quit Smoking or Drinking" plan. I definitely am NOT going to quit eating bacon in 2019!

 
That would be insane...

But I do plan on being a better person.  And maybe slightly more healthy.  I am on the Keto diet to lose a few pounds and to feel better.  But I'm not going to make it a "Resolution" because the second I do, I'll blow it. 

So, the closest thing to a resolution I've got is to just go the extra mile to be kind and helpful to people.

What are some of your New Year's Resolutions?

Happy New Year 2019!!!

Happy New Year 2019, my friends!!!

It brings me great pleasure to say that I am sitting here, on the first day of the new year, in front of a crackling fire in my living room, enjoying the day off with my family. My heart is full of gratitude and excitement to see what the new year has in store for us.

It's a cold 16 degrees here in Montana today, so staying inside is the way to go.  I do need to go out to get more wood for the fire, however, so I'll throw on my good old Muck Boots and grab a few pieces, but otherwise, I'll be inside the comfort of my warm home out here in the country.

So, in 2019 I will be here giving you blog posts about cabin home living.  And whatever the new year holds, I wish you well!



Dark Cabin Bathroom - Love This!

I am in love with this non-traditional cabin bathroom!!! It breaks all the rules, as far as regular bathroom design goes!  Most bathroom...
